I plan on making DIY embossed invitations and am starting to buy my supplies. I know I need to be COLORED PIGMENT ink and CLEAR embossing powder (thanks Bees). I’ve seen fine embossing powder and regular, and a million brands.
Can anyone recommend a particular brand or are they all the same? Also, for about 100 invitations, (and 2 stamps about 2×2 in size) how much embossing powder would you recommend?
Finally is there a certain type of paper you can and cannot emboss on? I am thinking of getting metallic ivory cardstock or linen cardstock and am not sure if that will work. For you who have embossed your invitations, what type of paper did you use? Just plain cardstock? Is cardstock recommended over regular paper?
I’m going to get all my paper supplies from paperandmore, probably.
Thanks in advance?
